La Bergamote's new and expanded Chelsea location represents a truly authentic French patisserie, featuring breakfasts of fresh croissants and steaming bowls of café au lait served in a tranquil European atmosphere. Oversized glass display cases are packed with fresh breads and rolls, several types of croissants (including chocolate, almond and ham & cheese), brioche, diverse sandwiches (including smoked trout, saucisson, croque monsieur, etc.), quiches, house-made chocolates, truffles and pâtes de fruits.
But the most extraordinary offerings are the more than two dozen types of pastries, ranging from crème brûlée to mousse noisette, eclairs, mini-patisserie, fruit tarts, and numerous others. Large cakes include the heavenly triple chocolate mousse and exquisite Bergamotier. The owners hail from the city of Nancy, and they clearly pay attention to all the details, including their top-quality espresso machine and hand-painted wall murals and framed artwork. You'll find a great value and top quality assured here, and the multinational staff is happy to describe the ingredients in the various confections and let you feel free to linger while enjoying your meal.
